Omvivo, formerly known as Vetrosystems was founded in 1991 by designer Joseph Licciardi. With a fascination for glass Joseph became the pioneer in Australia, and perhaps the world for producing formed glass in commercial sizes.
One of his first product designs was the innovative washplane®, inspired by architect Massimo Morozzi’s “flat basin”. The washplaneŽ® became a reality in the early nineties along with Australia’s first collection of round glass vessels, an elegant alternative to the traditional ceramic hand basin.
The collection grew significantly over the years with the introduction of signature pieces such as the Le Cob bath and the KL vessel, while the options expanded to include finishes such as natural stone, Corian® and Satine. Vetrosystems evolved into Omvivo in 2002, a brand that represents “conscious (OM) living (VIVO)”.
Soon after Omvivo was acquired by the Schiavello group of companies, an Australian commercial furniture manufacturer, dedicated to producing distinct quality pieces of superior design for a broad commercial clientele.
